What is TISAX and why does it matter?
The Trusted Information Security Assessment Exchange (TISAX) is a method for sharing the results of a TISAX assessment with other participants and potential business partners. The TISAX framework is a set of guidelines and standards for evaluating the security of information systems in the automotive industry developed by the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA). TISAX assessments are quickly rising in prominence within the automotive industry worldwide.
